WARRANT: Developing a Curriculum for Critical Thinking
A relationship exists between the three-year WARRANT project, created to design and implement a computer system to deliver a college freshman curriculum in the skills of reading, writing, and thinking, and the theory and practice of curriculum-building. The goal of the project is to create an interdisciplinary sequence of courses in critical skills that will function on an advanced work station that is capable of running up to 20 different processes at once. During the remaining two years of this project, it will be necessary to learn and then incorporate within the curriculum knowledge about the expert, the uninstructed student, and the instructed or developing student. Since it will be difficult to translate this knowledge, combined with three curriculum concepts (what a teacher teaches, what experts do, and what students do) into actual practice, the translation must be made by building up stories teachers tell, stories students tell, and stories put into the curriculum.
